Breaking down the Cardinal Draft: Rounds 3-10 

 On Tuesday, the 2015 Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft resumed. I’ll take you through the nine men the Cardinals drafted in rounds 3-10, listed in order. 

1. Harrison Bader- Outfielder

      Harrison played for the University of Florida. Over his college career, he batted .311 with a .847 OPS. Perhaps the most interesting stat is that he had 193 hits in 164 games. 

2. Jordan Hicks- Pitcher   

 Jordan Hicks is a right handed pitcher from Cypress Creek High School. He was drafted 105th overall. In his Junior year of high school, he led his varsity team to a district championship.

3. Paul DeJong- Third Baseman

 Paul DeJong is a powerhitting infielder drafted from Illinois State University. In his college career, Paul has played in 144 games. He batted .326 and had an OPS of .974. He also hit 23 long balls. 

4. Ryan Helsley- Pitcher 

  Ryan Helsley is a right handed pitcher  from Northeastern State University. In his 63.2 inning long career, Ryan has fanned ninety-five batters. 

5. Jacob Evans- Pitcher 

Jacob Evans is a left handed pitcher from the University of Oakland. In his sixty college games, Jacob had a 3.71 earned run average. Over the 126 innings he pitched, he struck out 115 batters. 

6. Jesse Jenner- Catcher  


Jesse is a catcher from the University of San Diego. In his 2015 season, he batted .314 and had 27 RBI. Arguably what stands out most with him is his defense. The .995 fielding percentage he posted will help you win any argument. 

7. Ian Oxnevad- Pitcher  

 Ian is a left handed pitcher from Shorewood High School. Over his varsity playing career, which he pitched 60.2 innings, he posted an earned run average of 0.64. 

8. Andrew Brodbeck- Second Baseman 

 Andrew is a middle infielder from Flagler College. In his college offense tenure, he has batted .346 with eighty-two RBI. My favorite statistic on him is his stolen base percentage. He has tried stealing fifty times in his career and has only been caught nine times, good enough for an 82% stealing- success rate. 

9. Kep Brown- Outfielder 

 Kep is an outfielder from Wando High School. His 2015 season was cut short, unfortunately, when he tore his achilles tendon in early April. In the thirteen games he did play, he batted .517 with an astronomical OPS of 1.548. In the early stretch, he also hit two long balls and drove in eight.
